Via Net Index: Household Download Index. the introduction:
Based on millions of recent test results from Speedtest.net, this index compares and ranks consumer download speeds around the globe. The value is the rolling mean throughput in Mbps over the past 30 days where the mean distance between the client and the server is less than 300 miles.
And we learn that Hong Kong, at 70.16 Mbps, whips the rest of us to shreds.Canada ranks #36 at 18.96 Mbps, barely ahead of Malta and Slovakia, and trailing Uruguay (19.34). The US: #30 at 20.33, but even tiny Andorra (#17) beats the Americans with 29.82. This does not bode well.
